Mark Rayner creates an art panel.
You will need: 19mm and 75mm galvanised nails, a piece of 6mm treated plywood, treated timber to make a backing frame (ours measured approximately 25mm x 50mm), clean cloth, drill with 3mm drill bit, hammer, low-tack masking tape, paintbrush, pencil, PVA glue, sandpaper, saw and set square, Resene Quick Dry, Resene testpots of Resene Alabaster, Resene All Black, Resene Chaos, Resene Fizz, and Resene Resolution Blue.
Approximate height and width dimensions of the coloured rectangles, moving clockwise around the panel: yellow – 230mm high and 150mm wide, red – 380mm high and 330mm wide, white – 100mm high and 330mm wide, blue – 100mm high and 150mm wide and white – 150mm high and 150mm wide.
Top tip: To prevent paint damage, carefully remove the masking tape before the second coat of paint dries.
Measure, mark and cut the plywood to form a square 480mm x 480mm. Cut the treated timber to make a backing frame measuring 480mm x 480mm. Smooth any rough edges with sandpaper.
On a flat surface, assemble the pieces of timber to form a square frame. Fix the timber at each corner with PVA glue and 75mm galvanised nails (drilling pilot holes first). Allow glue to dry.
Fix the plywood to the backing frame with PVA glue and 19mm galvanised nails. Allow glue to dry.
Paint the rectangles. Each rectangle requires two coats of paint with a drying time of two hours between coats. Paint the two white rectangles with Resene Alabaster.
Paint the back and side edges of the panel with two coats of Resene All Black, allowing two hours for each coat to dry. Mask off a 20mm ‘frame’ around the edge of the panel and apply two coats of Resene All Black. Remove the masking tape.
